LUNENBURG, N.S. - A Liberal candidate for the election in Nova Scotia has launched his better lawns and gardens platform.

Rick Welsford, who's running in Lunenburg, has challenged the other
local candidates to remove their large, plastic signs from soil and
turf. Welsford says it's all about keeping the historic town green -
and pleasant for the tourists who help to drive the local economy.

He says tourists are "revolted" when they see gardens littered with campaign signs.


Welsford issued his challenge to the Tories and New Democrats
during his closing remarks at a candidates' debate Thursday night in

He planned to remove his signs immediately after leaving the debate
